Good music but not so good movie
21 January 2003 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I like movies like this, but music took over. Story line little bit messy and ending is totally messy, but maybe should be like this. Nice, small movie with excellent music. Should be watch in small cinema or with lights down at home.
